Numbness and asthma on the area of bug bites, numbness spreading to legs that have turned splotchy, purple with visible veins. Worrisome?

About two days ago i was bit by a bug of some sort three times on the back of my leg. After the bite i have had mild asthmah which has carried on till today. Last night i woke up with the back of my leg numb in generalized area of the bites. Later on in the night the numbing worked its way down my leg. Today i still have the numbing and asthmah but now my legs are splotchy red/purple and veiny. Should i be concerned what could this be caused by?

Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
Thanks for giving good history.The bite has caused hypersensitivity reaction so you are having asthma like symptoms. Please tell me are you asthma patient. For all the symptom better to visit your doctor for the management. You must be started with anti histaminic drug for hypersensitivity and also if required corticosteroid and depending on the condition of the bite wound you can be put on antibiotic and antiinflammatory drug. So better consult your physician.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
